Their say

eczema Outreach (Scotland) was set up in 2011 in Linlithgow, by the mother of a young girl with severe eczema.

The Scotland-wide charity exists to support children and young people with eczema and their families by providing practical information, encouraging peer-support and running social events.

We guide parents with practical information through welcome packs, newsletters and individual advice on referrals, care at school, benefits, coping strategies and emotional support;

*create connections between families in groups and on a one to one basis;

*increase the children’s confidence and self-esteem with a programme of free outings;

*Raise awareness through a volunteering scheme, and influence policy to improve services

Membership is free of charge and we heavily depends on grants and donations. To join online find out more, go to www.eczema or contact 0800 6226018 / 01506 840395; text 07807048070; or email
